Us Version Of Khmer Rouge Animation Movie To Be Released

A first teaser has been made available for the US version – so far only with subtitles – of animated movie Funan, which retells the story about the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia between 1975 and 1979 from the view of a young woman.

Funan follows Chou, a young woman living in the chaos of the Cambodia of 1975. Chou’s everyday world is suddenly upended by the arrival of the Khmer Rouge regime. During the chaos of the forced exile from their home, Chou and her husband are separated from their four-year-old son, who has been sent to an unknown location. As she navigates her new reality, working in the fields day and night under the careful watch of soldiers, and surviving the small indignities and harrowing realities of the increasingly grim work camps, Chou remains steadfast in her determination to reunite her family — even if it means risking everything

The movie is an animated period drama film directed by Denis Do and written by Do and Magali Pouzol in a France-, Luxembourg- and Belgium-co-production. The world premiere of the film was held on June 11, 2018, and it was played at several other festivals throughout the remainder of 2018, including making its Australian premiere on October 17 at the Adelaide Film Festival.

For English-speaking regions, New York-based distributor GKIDS has acquired the rights to the movie and has set the first cinema showtimes for June 7 in New York and June 14 this year in Los Angeles. The English-language version will showcase the voices of John Cho (Star Trek, Searching), Rebecca Hall (The Town, Christine), and Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii Five-0).

Funan was well-received by juries and audiences at festivals, winning several awards. It also has a top rating on movie review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.
